1. Home Owners
It’s standard practice to keep a lawn looking pristine, but gardens are full of various plants that need skilled tending and scheduled maintenance. Part of the reason I suspected opportunities in this field is because I noticed the neglect of gardens, yet lawns are almost always cared for. I believe this is because there are so few affordable businesses who offer the specialized care of ornamental plants. It’s also enough work as it is to maintain a lawn, and the lawn does take up more space! Sometimes, even if a home owner does have the time, they may lack the tools or techniques necessary to enhance their gardens. Let JP Gardening help! Having tidy and flourishing gardens increases the value of your home and adds color and an artistic touch to the over-all image of your place of residence.
Homeowner's associations can really benefit from our work. So far we have maintained the gardens at the entrances, medians and perimeters of Cambridge Oaks, Pacific Meadows and Fountain Hills. The neighbors were grateful of the association’s decision to hire us, especially when they noticed the difference we made in the image of their neighborhoods. Also, as a HOA board member, you can save a lot of money with us by taking advantage of the Referral Discount. For every new client who hires us as a result of your referral, the HOA gets a free hour of work. So if, as a board member, you are privy to the contact information of your neighborhood’s residents, you could get a lot of free hours of work done for your neighborhood!
3. Real Estate Agents
I am patiently waiting for the day when real estate agents decide to invest in my services to help them sell properties. I have seen a lot of houses for sale surrounded by gardens that are choked out by weeds. Through the eyes of a prospective home owner, I see a neglected property. It seems to me that if you want to sell a home you must get people inside it for a tour, so lure them in there with a tidy appearance from the outside. It’s a small investment that can make a big difference in a property’s “vibe”.
4. Business Owners
For the same reasons as the other listed property types, a business with gardens must have them maintained. But in this case, these gardens are on display for the people you want to impress most: your clients. Just by looking at a tidy garden I can tell how detail-oriented a person is, and this portrayal of neatness and thorough work is what we offer our clients.
5. Lawn Care & Landscaping Companies
Because our service is so original and specialized, I am not in competition with lawn & landscape companies, which means that I can help them complete horticulture-oriented projects for their clients. I work with several companies like this, and it works out very well for everyone. We have developed valuable business relationships by promoting one other’s services and exchanging clients with various needs.
